Finally, we had a break from the heat wave! It has been pleasant and cooler today with temperatures in the 80's. A nice cool breeze has kept our dear old Honey Hill comfortable.
It was a wonderful day to attend to the smaller chores. The garden needed a little weeding and we plucked summer squash and a sweet red pepper! I plan to freeze the squash for use in soups and stews this winter....yum! We will grill the rest with other fresh veggies, oh my that will taste good.
A wonderful visit with the littles (the nieces and nephews) and my dear Sisters-in-Love who had spent the better part of an hour cleaning out the chicken house. We all live out here on the family acreage and it so nice to spend time together. We had a wonderful chat in the cool shade about this and that, but mostly about school which starts next week. I so enjoy their little voices and sweet stories.
I got around to some sewing that had been calling to me and Dearest headed out on a few errands. He brought home 2 large water barrels (recycled food storage barrels) that we will use in conjunction with our soon to be installed gutters. He also bought a very sweet screen door for the chicken house. Those gals need more fresh air! We were delighted that he found something that would fit...the door is 30'x 80'...that is quite an odd size for a doorway. He is putting it in as I type. What a guy!
I will be making homemade BBQ pizza for dinner tonight and since I'll have the oven on, I will make some Banana Bread too. If you would like the recipe for the pizza, leave me a comment and I will include it in a future post.
Later, I plan to sew the bias tape onto my Edwardian Apron. I need to finish it soon....I ordered Western Slope peaches from the Rotary Club and they will be coming next week. And you know what that means....canning season!
I took a few photos the other day, as the light was just right upstairs.....here are a few photos of our Master Bedroom.....
What a pleasant day indeed.....
Yours very kindredly,
P.S. I don't think that the room is quite as PINK as it is here on my blog, LOL!
